Tottenham Hotspur faced off against Fulham at Craven Cottage earlier tonight as they looked to secure maximum points in this London derby. Spurs made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the first half injury-time when Harry Kane found the back of the net with a great effort. Antonio Conte’s men went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Tottenham sat on their lead well in the second 45 minutes and earned a narrow 1-0 win on the road.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham Hotspur player fared during the match against the Cottagers.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 7.5/10

The French keeper made a few crucial saves at the back and secured an important clean sheet away from home.

CB: Cristian Romero – 7/10

Romero won his fair share of aerial duels and didn’t do much wrong at the back.

CB: Eric Dier – 7.5/10

The English talent made a lot of clearances inside his half and engineered one key chance going forward.

CB: Ben Davies – 7/10

He put his foot through the ball when required on the defensive end of the field and was a good presence on the ball.

RM: Emerson Royal – 7/10

Emerson performed his defensive duties well and was a threat down the right flank.

CM: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 7.5/10

He anchored the midfield with conviction and caused a few headaches for the opposition defenders as well.

CM: Rodrigo Bentancur – 7/10

The talented midfielder got stuck in with some solid tackles to make life tough for the opposition and made one decent chance in the final third.

LM: Ivan Perisic – 7/10

He came back to defend when his teammates needed him but lacked quality in the Fulham half.

RAM: Dejan Kulusevski – 6.5/10

Kulusevski had a couple of lively moments in the game but failed to register a goal.

LAM: Heung-min Son – 6.5/10

He struggled to get into the rhythm of the game but picked up an assist for setting up Kane’s goal.

ST: Harry Kane – 7.5/10

The England international scored the only goal of the game just before the half-time break and was a constant menace in the final third.

Substitutes:

RAM: Richarlison – 6/10

He offered very little after coming on as a substitute.

CM: Yves Bissouma – N/A

Bissouma came on for the final few minutes of the derby.
